Internet Explorer Earlier this week, Google launched Chrome Frame, a plugin for Internet Explorer 6/7/8 which replaces the Trident rendering engine with Chrome's rendering and JavaScript engine for better performance and superior standards compliance. Microsoft has responded to this release, claiming it makes Internet Explorer less secure. Note: What database category do I put this in? Internet Explorer? Google? Choices, choices!

You claim that Microsoft doesn't follow standards but you are aware that IE8 renders strict W3C standards by default, don't you?

So don't you mean that while they support current W3C standards you feel they should support more?

What you should have specifically said is that IE8 doesn't pass the Acid 3 test, which contains draft CSS3 elements that may in fact be changed or removed in the final proposal.

Here we have people calling IE "crap" for not following draft standards that may not even be part of a proposal that in itself is merely a suggested guideline.

Funny how that is rarely noted. Of course why bother stating the details when you are ideologically driven and just want people to use something other than IE.

Why not just state that you just plain don't want an MS browser to be dominate? It's intellectually honest at least and you'll find plenty of support.
